I have been wanting to get this ring for a long time, but I was never sure what to get. My dad died when I was 17 and we were very close. I would like to get a ring to remember him by, something that can be on my person at all times. I am stuck between looking for a vintage rose gold Opal ring on etsy (because it was his birthstone) or having an etsy vendor engrave his initials into a signet ring for me. I love the way the Opal rings look but they are not very durable for everyday use and Id really like to wear it all the time. I also like that the signet ring would have his initials so it may be more meaningful? i keep going back and forth and I really need some input. I will include photos of each ring below. Please respond with which idea you think will be a better remembrance or if anyone has other ideas I’d love to hear them.
The signet ring would have both of his initials not just the one. The detailing on the sides are shamrocks because he was very proud of his Irish heritage.
And here is the gorgeous Opal ring. Is it just me or do vintage opals look so much more lovely than new ones?
